When is the best time to have a cheat meal? I am trying to work out my diet. I have been following my program on the weekdays and cheating on the weekend. I'm just trying to pretty much maintain now. The biggest problem with this is that I feel like crap most of the weekend. So I'm trying to figure out a new plan.
When I was working with Shelby, he'd have me take my cheat meals after a workout. I was wondering if I'd be better off having a cheat meal after each of my 4 workouts instead of blowing up the whole weekend. I think my cheat meals would be a little more subdued this way and definitely better planned. Short of my shakes, the weekends have been a complete free for all.
Actually, now that I have thought about it for a few minutes I'd probably keep it down to 3 meals a week. My Friday night workout is not over until late and then it's about a 40 minute drive. By the time I get home, I just want to sleep. i'll just continue to bring a pwo meal to the gym in tupperware.
